One MD's advice for daily habit to improve quality of life:

"Never delay a bowel movement. Try to wait for a full bladder to urinate"

Bowel and bladder probs. majorly impair quality of life. This doc claimed following this advice can help maintain normal B&B control.

This is general advice and could be inappropriate for some folk.

I heard this on a Vancouver radio call-in program in the early 70's, so I have no reference. But it sounds like good general advice.

Glycation

High blood sugar mixes with high LDL and becomes oxidized LDL which causes plaque then Arthescelerosis and eventually Cardiovascular disease...

Low nad+ causes methyglyoxal, MethyGlyoxal is a deadly byproduct of glycolysis. ....Increase MG causes higher HBA1C levels...

Hba1c increases with age and is higher in the elderly.

One thing that I've noticed only recently is open ageism.

I employ 23 people, 4 of whom are over 60. Three clients have openly suggested not only to me, but to the staff themselves that they "should retire".

How rude and inappropriate is that?

I reminded all three of them that there's something called "Human Rights", and that they would get there(the age of the staff they were insulting) faster than they could imagine.

I think it's disappointing to be dismissed by people who haven't experienced a quarter of what life will throw to them.

Have you had experience with this?

Please share.
